Rare Citrus Fruit Could Be the Key To Better Cholesterol Health

Reading time: 2 minutes

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in your blood, it’s needed to build healthy cells. However, high levels of cholesterol can increase your risk of heart disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, high cholesterol numbers can lead to the development of fatty deposits in your blood vessels. Eventually, these deposits grow, making it difficult for blood to flow through your arteries (2).

For many people, it’s thought that taking a pharmaceutical drug (i.e. a statin) is the only path for supporting their cholesterol health.

However, new research shows that nature has provided a way to support cholesterol health.

In 2009, researchers in Italy discovered a “strange yellow fruit” that helps to naturally support cholesterol health (3, 4, 5). Since then, multiple clinical trials have been completed showing that this rare citrus fruit has a profound effect on cholesterol health (6, 7, 8, 9, 10).



Berbercol is a breakthrough formula that utilizes this rare citrus fruit (plus one other key ingredient).

Berbercol is a natural supplement designed to support cholesterol health from two unique angles: 1) it works to reduce excess cholesterol production, and 2) it helps to increase the amount of cholesterol removal receptors in the liver. This two-pronged approach helps to balance the amount of cholesterol produced on the front-end, and to remove any excess cholesterol on the back-end.

Berbercol is a safe, scientifically-backed supplement for cholesterol health
